MARCH 17: BRAVE Summit

Location: Gaston Hall
Time: 7:30 PM

Often times, we're told that black women need to be empowered when in fact, black women already have this power and don't need someone to give it to them. We just need the space to unleash it. That's also why 300+ black women and allies came together last year to celebrate the black woman. We are pleased to present the 2018 theme: “2018: Artistically, Authentically, Unapologetically Black.” We chose this theme because there is rhythm in the way we walk, poetry in the way we talk, and art in the way we carry ourselves in a country that consistently tries to conceal us. Many try to replicate, but our skin and our story can never be duplicated. And we strive to live a life with the ability to love ourselves in a world that tells us we are not worthy of this appreciation.

We wanted to highlight the strength and resilience of Latinx community in light of recent political events and natural disasters. Because of this, this year’s Reventón Latino will raise funds to go towards Operación Exito targeted to help those affected by the hurricane in Puerto Rico in 2017.
